The Beautiful Grim auction is up!

The Beautiful Grim auction is up. My piece "Daughter of Aries" is in with a lot of great artwork offered in first wave of the auction.
I blogged earlier about the good cause that the auction is for, and the story behind my own submission here.

Update- A great big thanks and congratulations to the person who bought my painting.

Spectrum 17 and the wall at Misty Mountain Games North

I'm just getting back into the swing of things after a fun weekend in Minneapolis, where I was the artist guest at a Rise of the Eldrazi pre-release there. A huge thanks to Steve, Cedan, and all the staff at mistymountain north. Those guys did a spectacular job of running the well attended event, all the while taking great care of me. I also had the honor of leaving my mark on their wall.

RK Post did the first dragon, on the top right. Below his is really cool drawing by Matt Cavotta. Jeff Easley's (who I've been a huge fan of since I was about twelve years old) is on the top left, and mine is below his. I was asked to draw whatever I wanted, but with three dragons already up there, I felt that only another dragon would hold up next to the other drawings. Plus, I pretty much never get to do dragons.

When I got home on Monday, I was pleasantly surprised to find my Spectrum 17 confirmation letter waiting for me. I'm pleased to say that I've gotten two pieces into this year's issue- The Battle under the Mountain and Kor Firewalker. It's a big deal for me to get one piece in, so I'm extremely excited to get two in.
